    Today is a sad day for my wife and I. We had to have our cat put down today . She was 2 months shy of her 10th birthday. Her liver was failing and her sugar levels were off. We did everything with the Vet I could do to save her. She finally got to the point were she woulldn't even clean herself and was stumbling about. I made sure I held her while the Vet gave her the lethal injection, I didn't want her to die alone with a stranger.

    Its funny that I hated cats and let my wife talk me into getting her way back when. It took all of 3mins for me to accept her into my life. I'm so heart sick I had to do this today. My other cat ,,,yes other cat Katie and dog Laci are missing her as well. Love your pet every chance you get, their only with you a short time...make the best of it.

    I remember when my Patches had a blood clot, from an undiagnosed heart problem, block the artery to the hind quarters. It was terrible as she suffered at first from the pain. I was with her when the vet put her down the same way. I still miss that big cuddle bunny.


    I love Calico Cats!

    I'm very sorry for your terrible loss.

    She certainly was a VERY beautiful cat!

    Here is my calico kitty. She's about 14YO, and I just learned that her liver is leaking enzymes. I'm hoping her liver improves, but the odds aren't very good :crying:

    I love all cats, but I have a real soft spot for calico cats.:cool:

    It has only been 3 months since our Butch Buddy passed. I held his head in my hands as the vet did his thing, much like you did. The last thing he saw was his daddy. After nearly 11 years, it hurt to let him go, but I know he suffers no more.

    It is hard to explain to someone who doesn't own any pets how much it hurts when an old friend has to go. To me, it is almost as painful as losing a child, and I pray to God that never happens.

    We also have two cats that have been with us for many years, and, for now, they are in good health.

    I feel your pain Tango, and again, I am so sorry for your loss :crying:

    Sorry to hear about your loss. It's never easy. I lost one of my cats last year, and I still have my moments where I break down when I think about him. Time is a good healer. Take care.

    I'm so sorry about your loss. It is so hard when they go.

    Here is a picture of my two color calico - Sylvester. We got him at the local shelter. His long hair is softer than the persian we had before him. He is 11 now and sleeps on our bed every day before going outside each evening. He is a bit sleepy in this picture, usually his eyes are not so droopy :)

    He's beautiful! I love long hair cats. It's been almost a year since I lost one of my cats and I'm still having a hard time getting used to him not being here. It is very hard dealing with these things, especially when your really close to them. It hurts in a way that words can't explain.
